well let's see. I'd heard some greatest hits ( skeletens then WALSTIB which is a weird collection not greatest hits at all ) sort of stuff but nothing really grabbed my soul for good until I'd say I heard Skull and Roses. The Wharf Rat and NFA>GDTRFB transition really clued me into what they were all about

Saturday Night Live. I had heard them plenty. I knew Truckin' and Casey Jones - everybody knew Casey Jones in the 70's. But I saw them that first time on Saturday Night Live -1978 I think.

last Friday I went to Costco to buy Star Wars on BluRay ( gotta have it! ) and what did I see? The first five or six seasons of SNL for 12 ea! Of course I have to buy season three or whatever it was to have the Dead performance. They didnt have the other season with them from what I saw. Much to my dismay the call it the COMPLETE season but they only had Casey Jones. Didnt the bands play twice then too?

Did you get the Star Wars, my wife and I ordered it for us and my two kids (they are fanatics as well, they are going as a storm trooper and padomie for halloween) I pre-ordered it from amazon and it should be here soon, how is the blue-ray. I am more pumped about Star Wars then I was the Euro 72 box

hell yeah, had to get it the day it came out. Costco had it for the same amount as Amazon - 80 for all six movies and three bonus discs. So far we've watched Revenge of the Sith, New Hope and Empire Strikes back. Revenge of the Sith looked especially amazing. There's only so much you can do with the original but they still looked as good as I've sen. Don't like the extra crap Lucas added in but he's been doing that for awhile. Me and my son are both really into it, he knows more than me largely due to video games. The first one, episode IV will always have the top spot in my heart. I was 7 when my Dad took us to see it. Naturally got swepped up in it all

thats cool about your kids. My son loves it but my daughter not so much : (

Hey speaking of Storm Troopers do you know the story of how Samual Jackson got involved? Pretty cool. He just wanted to be a part of it even just as a storm trooper

I did not know that about Jackson at all, that is pretty cool though. My kids have the lego game, they watch the clone wars and love the movies. IV will always be my favorite as well, saw it 13 times when I was 12 (of course we were able to sneak into the theater at that time!) Both my kids love it, now music is another story my 9 year old is into pop country(kills me) and dance music but my 4 yd old son is into the GD with me, he knows a Bob or Jerry tune and loves Phil ( he wanted me to take him to Furthur this summer) he loves the Black Crowes, Mule and all the music I do but this will probably change as he gets older. He makes fun of my daughter though and the music she likes! It cracks me up. But to say both my kids are Star Wars freaks and that my boy loves the same music I do, I am doing well so far!!!!!!!!!!! hahahahaha. Hopefully the delivery will come this weekend

I thought Good lovin and Miracle was the second time they played SNL? They played the show twice. No thanks to Lorne Michaels. Thanks to Franken and Davis and later Belushi and Akroyd I'm sure. Now I must research

First exposure during college days. E72, Wake Of The Flood, and Mars Hotel.

Got it for sure during my first show. 5/7/77. Been an amazing ride ever since.

"Got it for sure during my first show. 5/7/77" ~DBD
I just pooped a little. wow. If anyone were to 'get it'...

Thank you all for sharing your stories. I wish there were
more, but don't we all. Hopefully, there will be more to
come.

I really appreciate 'the moments that led up to getting it',
responses:(Diamondhead "it's when I started panicking about getting tickets when they came to town. (LOL)" and SDH and
Old_NJ_Head_Zimmer sharing that knowledge.
That helps me open my head even a little more.
Thanks peeps!
